Baked Eggs with Ricotta and Kale

by

I took a week off from this blog.  And the only thing I have to show for it is this super basic and easy recipe for Baked Eggs with Ricotta and Kale. I had plans to get all ready and caught up for the new year. I didn’t follow through with them. But, I did eat a mountain of chocolate and I’m ready to get back to my regularly scheduled program. We took our chickens to a real farm. They were plenty happy on our side yard but I think our neighbors are happier without them there.  They were pretty loud. 

So, I haven’t really been eating eggs lately.  Ben buys them though so I had some for this recipe.

There’s nothing all that special here.  Just a classic combination of some of my favorite foods (kale, eggs, and cheese). Sometimes the most simple meals are the most satisfying. This year has been hard in a lot of ways.  I’m ready to move on!
